Welcome to Foxes Class
Currently the adults in the class are Mrs Horsford (Class Teacher), Mrs Young (TA Monday – Wednesday) and Miss Axon (TA Thursday and Friday).
We’re now over half way through the year – and what a fantastic time we’ve had. We’re so proud of each and every one of you and how you’ve grown as people.
This term we are discovering how rivers form, where they go and how humans affect their journey. In maths we are tackling dreaded fractions, but everyone is mastering them brilliantly. Our book this term is Journey to the River Sea, which will help bring our topic to life as well as inspire some amazing writing. This term on a Friday Foxes are enjoying their art, as well as lots of PE and music.
Homework is still set on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday; last term the children that completed every homework set enjoyed a hot chocolate, biscuit and story and art session with Mrs Young – so keep up the hard work. Homework should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete and it’d be brilliant if all the children could read for at least ten minutes every day.
Again, this will result in a reward! PE days are still Tuesdays and Fridays. Please remember to wear the correct school uniform.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries.
